Colleges & Schools

Would you like to Give to the College of Business, Technology, and Communication?

When you graduate from Bemidji State you will know firsthand what "Best Decision Ever" means. As the Dean of the College I can tell the top three things that attracted me to Bemidji.

  • The uniqueness of Northwest Minnesota. The diverse culture, nature, and even the tunnels that connect the buildings can't be duplicated anywhere else.
  • Commitment to students. I have been at much larger schools and smaller schools. The students truly are the #1 priority at Bemidji.
  • Academic programs. The college has outstanding online and on-campus programs in business and accounting, nationally recognized programs in areas such as exhibit design, one of the best facilities in the country housing the Technology, Art, and Design Department, and a Mass Communication program that will allow more hands on experience than you will find anywhere else.

You have my personal assurance that a decision to join the College of Business, Technology, and Communication will be your "Best Decision Ever".
